Fabulous - Bright - Free illustrations, full of life, colour and visual POP!

Vera is probably best known for her silk scarves.

The original 'Signature' scarf -

Vera discovered parachute silk in an army surplus store during World War II, and silk screened designs - signed simply with 'Vera'.

Later she added a lady bird - ladybug - to her signature.

They were incredibly popular, Marilyn Monroe was a great fan and wore one - with nothing else - for a famous Vogue magazine fashion shoot.

Vera even produced a wee booklet on how to wear them:
